Thanx Adam and Jessica.
My wife and I stayed at the Parador in January. We had looked online at various B&B’s in Pittsburgh and chose it because of the neighborhood appeal as well as its dog-friendly policy (albeit limited). Despite freezing temperatures without, the Parador’s tropical wall murals and general Caribbean vibe kept us feeling warm throughout our stay. But speaking more literally, the place was indeed well-heated and quite comfortable, even in the Carriage House where we bunked. We arrived a little behind schedule but Ed was kind enough to wait up for us and give us all the information we needed for our stay. We were quite satisfied with the rooms and services provided, enjoyed breakfast the following morning, and would definitely recommend the Parador to anyone planning a trip to Pittsburgh.
I never recommend rooms, I love them all. Hope you get a chance to visit us soon.
We come to visit Pittsburgh at least once or twice a year from Cleveland… We really love the city now Im looking forward to our next visit so we can stay at your place…. Which room would you recommend? the all look wonderful….
Looking forward to meeting you and Razor and RJ!
I stayed for two nights at the Parador this past weekend. I have been to many B&Bs (which I prefer to the sameness of the chain hotels) in various cities. The Parador is by far the BEST. The location was great as was the breakfast that Ed made for the guests. I had the Chenille room and it was a beautiful room. I especially liked the stained glass window and the claw foot tub. I actually hated to leave the Parador. This former mansion is lovely and the veranda is delightful. It’s nice and relaxing to sit out there and read or have a cup of coffee. I plan to stay at The Parador Inn again this summer. Razor and RJ add to the charm!
We stayed with Ed about 1 year ago. It was awesome! Delicious breakfast, awesome home/building with plenty to see. I would def stay here again and would highly recommend the Parador Inn to friends and family. Great place, great price, great guy and great dogs – nuff’ said.
There are not enough adjectives to describe the Parador. Amazing, unique, awe-inspiring – none of these quite capture the charm, beauty and carribbean whimsy that makes this place so special And who would have thought we would find this treasure in Pittsburgh? Certainly not me. But we did and I cannot say enough about it. Take a breathtaking Victorian mansion, restore it with loving care and impeccable authentic decor – then add some bright and unexpected interior colors, a sandy “beach” outside, the shadows of palm leaves on the walls, a Key West style sun room, a black lab and a great host named Ed and you have The Parador. And don’t forget the superb breakfasts! There is no detail Ed has overlooked…even down to the small, but powerful, flashlight on the bedstand so you can use the “facilities” without waking your husband by turning on the lights (or tripping over your feet). Thank you for being there Ed. We will return. I want to try every room!
We came down to stay a night & to see a Steelers game while in town. The location was perfect for the game – you could throw a rock at the stadium! We were pleased to see how charming & original the interior of the Inn was. Our accomodations were more than what we expected & the staff were very nice & informative. Ed made an aamzing breakfast of melba waffles, pumpkin bread & melon parfaits. Overall, a very nice stay. Not only would we reccomend, but would stay again if we ever come back to the area!
We stayed two nights in the Bougainvillea and were very pleased with it. Ed makes a terrific baked oatmeal entree and whips up creative breakfast parfaits. Razor is a well behaved black lab who still has a fair amount of puppy in him and enjoys playing with the guests. The patio has comfortable furniture and the courtyard is lush with flowers and shrubs and is very quiet. The Parador’s location makes it an ideal place to stay if one desires to go to Heinz Field, PNC Stadium, the Science Center or to stroll / bike along the riverfront. If one has trouble with climbing stairs, then perhaps the Bougainvillea is not the room to get, as it involves two flights of stairs to reach the bedroom and bathroom. Other rooms at the Parador seemed to be located on the second story. Nearby are a McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Seven-Eleven, and Ed can recommend other places in the vicinity of the Parador for one to explore.
My fiance and I stayed here for a weekend and Ed was fabulous and the house was even more fabulous… We love the area the house is located and the service was truly wonderful!!! We will be back soon
I just returned from my niece’s graduation, and the Parador is where I chose to stay. I thought the inn was most charming, and Ed was a wonderful host. My room was very spacious and the breakfasts served were great. I loved the antique clocks, the chandeliers and the lovely garden. I will definitely stay there again if I have another opportunity to visit Pittsburgh.
My daughter had her wedding there on May 22. Absolutely Fabulous, even with the rain. Ed was wonderful and very easy to work with. Breakfasts were delightful. Highly recommend the Parador Inn. Love the dogs, Razor and RJ. Hint..Don’t try to hang tulle outside with RJ around. He thinks it is a toy.
Location, location, location. This Caribean B & B located in the North Shore, an older quieter area of Pittsburgh is a short 10 to 15 minute walk to downtown. It is also, from a retired policer’s point of view, in a safe neighborhood. My wife and I walked every night after dark and were always comfortable. Our room was not just clean it was immaculate. Soft Caribean music in the background, every breakfast was an experience in gorme dining. Ed is a gracious host and is a walking encycropedia of where to go and where to eat. Razor and PJ adds the homey touch. Why would anyone even consider staying anywhere else.
My husband, Mark, and I love the Parador Inn. The inn is beautiful, with historic charm and fun Carribbean flair, the bedrooms are elegant and comfortable, Ed is a gracious host who makes superb breakfasts, Razor and R.J. are friendly canine hosts, and the housekeeping staff is efficient and accommodating. In addition, the location is easy to find and convenient to the many things Pittsburgh offers. Mark and I are glad we found the Parador; it has become a home away from home for us when we visit our children, who are students at Pitt. We look forward to our visit every time.
